COMAddress.Lookup is a COM object, which in the above example is being used in VB, but the same object could easily be used with VB.NET, Delphi, and another language which allows you to create and use a COM object.

The above code will call our standard address lookup desktop application which is running in the background.   

This has the advantage that the address lookup search window can be used with other applications which the user may be using.

Our Postcode lookup service is "Black Box" Lookup Service.  Or in other words, simply add it to your software, and install on client PC's.  We take care of all the management tasks.

Example code for Postcode Address Lookup SOAP Web Service in VB.NET:

'Define the SOAP Web service to get Postal address by Postcode

Dim PostcodeSearch As New PostcodeWebService.WebService

Dim SearchPrima As New PL_SearchPrimaRecord

Dim AddressesDataReturned As New PL_AddressesDataReturnedRecord


'Set search criteria, either full Postcode or Two other address fields

With SearchPrima

  .Postcode = Me.InpPostcode.Text

End With


'Do Search, on Postcode or two or more address fields

AddressesDataReturned = PostcodeSearch.SearchForAddress( _

       Me.InpDataKey.Text, _

      "TestUser", "UK", SearchPrima)


If AddressesDataReturned.SearchPerformedWithoutError Then

  'Display results, no major error

  If AddressesDataReturned.ErrorMessage <> "" Then 



  With AddressesDataReturned

    'Show amount of Postocde Lookup credits left

    Me.Text = .CreditsStatusText


    'Remember the URL to buy more Postocde Lookup credits

    LinkToBuyMoreCredits = .BuyMoreCreditsURL

    Me.LinkTOBuyMore.Visible = True


    'Put Address data in listview

    Dim x&

    For x = 0 To .LineCount

      Dim itemToAdd As ListViewItem = ListView1.Items.Add(   

                        _.Lines(x).ID, 0)



  End With


  Me.TabControl1.SelectedIndex = 1


  'Display error (Account stuff mostly)


End If

And to finally read the Postal Address:

'Get ID from Listbox in hidden column 0

Dim AddressID As String = ListView1.Items(ListView1.SelectedItems.Item(0).Index).SubItems(0).Text


'Define Postcode Address Lookup SOAP Web service

Dim PostcodeSearch As New POstcodeWebService.WebService

Dim Address As PL_AddressRecord


'Ask for Address by ID

Address = PostcodeSearch.GetAddressRecord(Me.InpDataKey.Text, _

          "TestUser", "UK", AddressID)


Me.TabControl1.SelectedIndex = 2


If Address.AddressRecordGotWithoutError Then

  'Display results

  If Address.ErrorMessage <> "" Then MsgBox(Address.ErrorMessage)


  'Process the Address to text field

  Dim AddressText As String

  With Address

    AddressText = "Company:" & .CompanyName & vbCrLf



  End With

  Me.TxtAddress.Text = AddressText


  'Display error (Account stuff mostly)


End If


Please note: Section 3.5 of the terms and conditions state: "The Customer, when using the Postcode Lookup service via Web Service, must make sure each user is identified by username, in each call to the Web Service."   In simple language this means that each user must be identified by a unique username.  

So "TestUser" must be each user name, this is to ensure any future changes in the Royal Mail License agreement can be complied with.
